PLANS are afoot to cut the size of a north supermarket in half.
If approved, designs lodged with Highland Council will see the Alness Co-op cut in size, making way for another business under the same roof.
A Co-op spokeswoman, said: “We are due to make significant investment in the Alness Co-op store in 2020 in order to provide the community with an upgraded and modern Co-op that better serves their needs.”
The Co-op recently announced that it was upgrading its store at nearby Invergordon, the spokeswoman continued: “We are delighted to have received planning permission to take forward our plans for a new Co-op store in Invergordon.
“We want to provide the community with a modern Co-op that better suits their needs and provides a wider range of fresh, healthy foods, meal ideas and essentials with the added convenience of an on-site car park.
“This investment demonstrates our commitment to local area and we look forward to opening our doors towards the end of next year.”
